i've been running a few precision 15" laptops and my last one (M4600, quadro200M, 16Gb Mem, 3 drives all ssd) is dying.
I just saw the latest released by dell of new XPS and Precision lines with 4K infinity screens, skylake ...
I know Dell makes reliable and durable machines as mine is runing 12h a day.
I might be in for replacing my current one with one of the above mentionned.
But I'm not sure which one would be more suited for PPCC and a bit of AE
looks like precision could have 2 ssd drives along with new M1000M quadro card
precision might be more pro orientated and more durable
but XPS15 is offering a 960M geforce with more cuda cores but only 1 drive
what would you go for, performance wise
with many thanks for your help
2 SSD's are much more beneficial than the video card, even a lousy slow Quadro. Best would be 2 SSD's and a GTX video card. Have a look at other brands, like Asus.
I see, thank you for this imput. looks like the XPS could have a pcie 4x m2 slot and a ssd 2.5 slot so that would be the go over the brand new quadro M1000M
Am I correct saying that quadros cards are more robust and designed for CAO than Geforce offering more Cuda (ie better for video editing ?) for less money ?
